Real Looney Time: Bill Maher, Anthony Weiner defend Obamacare

November 8, 2013 – Bill Maher and Anthony Weiner battled Real Time panelists GOPAC president David Avella and Victoria DeFransceco Soto over the media coverage of Obamacare and President Obama’s apology for the botched rollout, with Weiner and Maher charging that however bad the rollout may have been, the Republicans had effectively no plan to deal with the health care crisis in the first place. Whereas Maher thought the media’s been doing a crappy job not reporting the facts to people about the lower costs and better options of health care plans, Avella said they’re not doing their due diligence to report on the “hundreds of thousands of people who are losing their health care.” Weiner shot back that Obamacare came from Republicans in the first place, shouting “That’s your idea! Why don’t you like it now that we wrote it into law?!”

Soto found it a huge mistake that Obama waited weeks before apologizing and explaining the faulty “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” line, and when Weiner pushed back, she said, “You’re being paternalistic here.” She argued that Obama’s apology was too little, too late, at which point Maher cried, “When did Bush ever say he was sorry!”

Weiner kept insisting, “We’re trying to provide coverage because the Republicans can’t come up with a way to do it!”
